The strength of synthetic slings may be degraded when used in harsh environments or exposed to chemicals. Contact Ranger or the manufacturer before using slings in a chemically active environment.
Synthetic slings are most susceptible to cuts, rips, abrasion, and tears. Corner protectors, wear pads, or edge guards should be used to protect them from abrasion and cuts. Edge protection and cut protection should be used on all edges and corners—even the ones that aren’t load-bearing surfaces.
Regular inspections are essential. Make sure your synthetic slings are inspected regularly.
Regular Inspections are essential
Using lifting gear can often have a high risk of injury, and the cost to business can be significant when something goes wrong.
It is important to ensure that regular examinations and inspections of lifting gear are undertaken to ensure maintenance is kept, and to verify that the equipment can continue to be safely used.
